Bloomberg Demands Gun Restrictions

 
 
Reply Tue 4 May, 2010 09:04 pm
NY City Mayor Bloomberg is going to Washington to demand that people on the FBI terrorist watch list be banned from purchasing guns.

Quote:
Bloomberg is upset about a federal loophole that, amazingly enough, allows people on the FBI's Terrorist Watchlist to legally buy guns and explosives.

Current federal law specifies only a limited number of reasons the government can cite to block the purchase of guns or explosives -- and being in the FBI's database of those "known or reasonably suspected of being involved in terrorist activity" isn't one of them.


I personally think federal law in right in this case. The FBI needs no evidence of a crime to put someone on the watch list and gun ownership is a Constitutional right, so how can Congress do what Bloomberg wants and prevent someone who has not been convicted of a crime from owning a gun?

Of COURSE! Anyone can suspect anyone of anything,
or of anything that he MIGHT do in the future.

The means of amending the Constitution are set forth in Article 5.
Nowhere therein does it say that u can get screwed out
of your Constitutional RIGHTS, by someone SUSPECTING u of anything.

@OmSigDAVID,
I guess we'll see how this plays out today. If I see an article, I'll post it.
